Is that you, Applebee’s? You look… different.
Last month, it was revealed that Chuck E. Cheese was posing under more grown-up Pasqually Pizza and Wings. on certain food delivery apps. The shocking information was originally uncovered open by a Reddit user, who posted an exchange with a Grubhub delivery driver as proof.

“CEC Entertainment, Inc. recently launched Pasqually’s Pizza & Wings nationwide. Pasqually’s Pizza & Wings, named after another favorite member of Munch’s Make Believe Band, shares kitchen space with the Chuck E. Cheese restaurant, ensuring high-quality, fresh ingredients.” (Munch’s Make Believe Band, as we all know, is the same now-defunct animatronic band that played for guests at Chuck E. Cheese.)
According to the spokesperson, the pizza sold at Pasqually’s is different than the cheesy offerings you might remember from Chuck E. Cheese, reportedly featuring “a thicker crust, extra sauce and new blends of cheese and seasoning, giving consumers a more flavorful, more premium pizza experience.”

The restaurant did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News, or confirmation on whether or not Pasqually was actually the one making the pizzas, for that matter.
This rebranding gimmick, meanwhile, is not only being used by Chuck E. Cheese as Americans are turning more to app-based food delivery during the coronavirus pandemic. Neighborhood fast-casual dining favorite Applebee’s is also listed as “Neighborhood Wings” on Grubhub.
